MAKE RIGHTEOUS JUDGEMENT (by benaiah juma).
Joh 7:24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
I wanted to do this topic because a lot of people use and misinterpret the scriptures and use it wrongly to defend their behavior that offends God. Nowadays it is common when you rebuke and condemn sins, people get offended and they start using phrases such as God loves me, he sees my heart, do not judge only God can judge me and so forth.
First of all that is not true. The word of God is used and it is given unto us for correction and reproval of sin to make people ripe for salvation. There is possibly no way you can do evil and say you have a good heart. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. The word of God says that an evil man out of the evil treasure in his heart produces evil fruits and a good man out of the good treasure in his heart produces good fruits. If you do evil things it shows that your heart is evil.
The word of God tells us to make righteous judgment. We are allowed to judge and condemn evil acts in the society. If people come around you and sin and you do not tell them the truth you have been made a partaker of their sins and their blood will be poured over you. Some people tend to quote the scripture and say that judge not lest you be judged and use this verse to defend their evil works. What this verse means is that if you decide to judge make sure you have overcome a sin, because if you have not overcome the sin you will be judged for it.
If you are a smoker you can’t condemn other people from smoking because you are doing the same thing and they will also judge you for smoking. It is vain condemning sins which you yourself are involved in. But if you are living holy life in Christ Jesus, you are given the authority and the mandate to make righteous judgment and warn the wicked from the error of his way.
Again we are not allowed to make wrong judgment. If you make a statement about a person or a situation that is false you will be judged for it, but if you make righteous judgment you will be praised by Jesus Christ for speaking out the truth. Reprove sin always and do not mind what reprobates do and say to defend their unfruitful works of darkness. Judge, condemn and rebuke sin always for the well-being of your soul and other people.
